The makers of Bell Bottom will shoot the first schedule of the film in London. Earlier in the day, Lara Dutta shared a picture from the sets of the film. She can be seen wearing a mask in the picture, which also features her team members following safety norms. “And it begins. I’m claiming one for the girls. As a 42-year-old female actor, in this COVID period, it feels amazing to be the first to be back on set of a big Bollywood film. Thank you Pooja Entertainment for creating a safe environment for us,” the actress wrote in the caption.
Earlier this month, actress Huma Qureshi shared a boomerang of herself, Lara Dutta, producer Jackky Bhagnani and director Ranjit M Tewari and wrote: “Safety first. Team Bell Bottom waiting for our leading man Akshay Kumar Sir.” All team members can be seen wearing masks in the clip.
Bell Bottom,which will also star Vaani Kapoor, is being directed by Ranjit M Tewari and co-produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikkhil Advani. It is Bollywood’s first film to shoot at an international location after the nationwide lockdown.
